Provider of business-class managed voice, Internet and data network services, tw telecom (News - Alert), recently offered its E-Line customers a special deal on its Dynamic Capacity service.
The company first launched its E-Line services with Dynamic Capacity in August to customers in all 16,300 of its on-net buildings. And now, for a limited time as part of an effort to increase awareness of E-Line with Dynamic Capacity in its metro markets, the company is outright waiving the subscription fee for Dynamic Capacity, as well as providing its real-time network visibility service, Enhanced Management, for free.
Dynamic Capacity is the second of three phases in tw telecom's efforts to address increased bandwidth demand from businesses as the popularity of cloud computing hits a fever pitch. Basically, Dynamic Capacity allows enterprise customers to scale their E-Line business Ethernet bandwidth and capacity instantly across the network without any interruption of service. This is carried out through the MyPortal Web interface.
In fact, the service allows customers to double or even triple network capacity in seconds, returning to their original data rate when increased speeds are no longer needed. Some examples include military bases using Dynamic Capacity to increase bandwidth as personnel are deployed back to the U.S., or a law firm recently increasing bandwidth to host a week-long partners' conference.
While it may seem that E-Line with Dynamic Capacity may have the potential to decrease the amount of bandwidth customers use, it tends to not work that way as the service is priced in a manner which simply gives customers greater flexibility. The MyPortal interface tells customers upfront the price per megabit per hour, then automatically increases or decreases capacity, establishing maintenance if necessary and finally creating a billing record.
tw telecom also recently expanded its carrier Ethernet network in metro Kansas City, Missouri. This expansion potentially delivers tw telecom network solutions to over 300 additional businesses in the area.
